DOWNTOWN – Retire to Portland Oregon in a Penthouse Downtown Condo

Downtown Portland Oregon

Downtown Portland is a unique and hip part of Portland that has an abundance of charm, history, beauty and charecture. Downtown Portland borders Nob Hill and Goose Hollow and extends along the Willamette River as well as the 405 Fwy. Walking around downtown you will notice many narrow streets and compact blocks. This was in mind when Downtown was being built so walking around can be that much easier and more corner lot stores available. The accessibility to get around is excellent. Everything from the Street cars, tri-met bus’s, taxi’s, easy to bike, easy to walk, it is no wonder why Downtown Portland is one of the many highlights all of Portland has to offer. It is also no wonder why everyone loves to retire in Portland Oregon.

    Hi, I’m Ali Jessie’s mom. Ali sent me your website because she is hoping we will “retire to downtown Portland.” We’re undecided. We have lived in Sunnyvale CA for 34 years. Our friends and our other daughter Kristen live in the Bay Area (at least for now). But Ali lives in Portland (when she’s not somewhere else in the world), so that is a big draw. Plus what we see of Portland we like. So we’re thinking maybe we would buy a condo as a second home, or maybe we would move to Portland full time. Who knows. My question to you is, if we wanted to rent a place in downtown Portland for, say, three months, is that possible? We’re thinking it would be a good idea before we make any decisions. We would want to do this during the worst weather months of the year, which for me is the “overcast” months, not the raining months. Looking forward to hearing from you.

I have been living off of my Organic fruit and vegetable garden for the last 25 years. I don\'t go produce shopping for 8 months of the year.
